alright sweet.. See I used a aux switch for my air compressor, and one for the train horn, but I might get a push button and use that for my horn, how are you guys wiring up the switches? Straight from the battery? or fuse panel?

does that work with the remote? So if the switch is on, and you lock your doors or something, the train horn blows? How did you wire it up, i'm interested, and what kind of horns do you have?

Lol yes it does honk the train horn if i leave the switch on (given myself a heart attack the first few times hahahah, but now i sneak attack people hahaha)

ill find the wiring diagram they sent me. I have a kit from Hornblasters(dot)com it was simple and very foward hardest part was mounting the 4 trumpets.

Awesome, I would love to do that... I'm guessing you have the shockers? Thats what I have.. And where did you get the switch? Thats a cool spot for it too! Looks just like a simple toggle switch with a metal toggle from a part store

Yea I also have the shockers, 5 gal tank at 200 psi. I didn't buy the kit from hornblasters, just the horns. Mounting was a pain, but I found a nice spot for mine under the rear cab driver side door. and mounted the compressor and tank in the bed. seems to be easy to wire up

I currently have 2 of my switches utilized. I also have a seperate Sho-me switch for my LED light bar that has a power switch as well as a scroll switch for different patterns. It is mounted under my dash board cup holders facing my gas pedal.

Awesome.. I'm off on saturday so I'm going to try to wire it up.. but I am going to take a guess, it goes the the horn wire, to the switch, and to the solenoid, and assuming the power is taken from the stock horn wire?

I used up all of my switches myself ,so found these and it turned out okay, tried to make it look like they belonged there

how did you cut those in there? i have two switches mounted on the panel below but id like to move them up to there so that they are closer. i used up all 4 of my switches as well so i installed two like that below the wheel they run three halogens up front and soon an led light bar :woot:

BIG RED BUBBA.. How did you hook up the lights in the bumper? How did you mount them? Also, you said you have an on board air system.. is it an electric pump? I have electric and want to switch it to one that runs off the engine
